I really just need Jessica Alba to stop. Every single interview she gives lately is about how insecure she used to be and how she’s still insecure and how sure, objectively she’s really hot and also filthy rich, she still feels lesser-than sometimes because boo hoo, life is hard.
Jessica stopped by The Meredith Vieira Show on Wednesday to go on and on about the same old shit (via US Weekly):
“My teens and my 20s I just wasn’t sure of myself and I was always kind of insecure and I always felt I needed to apologize for myself,” the brunette told the talk show host. “After I became, first of all, 30 and being a mom of two, I just sort of came into myself as a woman and now I have a company,” Alba said of daughters Honor, 6, and Haven, 3.
The Honest Company co-founder, 33, explained her lack of education also hindered her confidence. “I was always also insecure about not going to college and I always felt I wasn’t smart enough,” she added. “I feel better now especially after 30, it’s crazy what happens.”
I don’t doubt that Jessica Alba sometimes feels insecure. We all do – we’re human beings, and it’s especially hard as a woman, which doesn’t even take into account being a woman in the public eye. However, the way she goes on about it, you’d think she’s persecuted on a daily basis and called fat and ugly and a million other things. She’s just about to be a billionaire and is constantly told how hot she is. Something just doesn’t add up. That’s not to say, of course, that people who are praised for their looks by others have to internalize that or get all their self-esteem from that, but I kinda feel like she just has nothing else to talk about, nothing else that makes her seem interesting, so she resorts to this pity party shit. Sorry, I’m just not feeling it.
Jessica Alba seems… sometimes not all that smart. I don’t know why I get that impression, I just do – probably largely because she says shit like what she came up with in a new interview with Marie Claire UK. You see, Jessica was “pretty pissed off” about turning 30 and really struggled with it because she thought she couldn’t “party like a rockstar” anymore or something? I don’t know, it doesn’t make sense to me either.
“I was pretty pissed off. I don’t know why it was so hard, it just was,” she tells Marie Claire UK. “I was pregnant first of all, and I really wanted to party like a rock star! I didn’t even know I cared about my 20s until I turned 30.”
Despite the 30 life crisis, Alba admits that she is more comfortable in her own skin and has a newfound confidence that she didn’t have in her 20s. “I feel like I look better now. I think I came into my own physically in my 30s, even when I’d had kids,” she says.“ I feel more like a woman, with not such a girl face-I had such chubby cheeks”.
Yes, Jessica Alba – I know you had SUCH chubby cheeks. What a fat cow you were! I’m rolling my eyes here – it’s such bullshit. I love how she can spend one interview talking about how she knows she’s really good looking and the next talking about how difficult it was to feel comfortable with herself.
Also, life doesn’t stop when you’re 30. It’s just another year, can you get a grip? BYE, GIRL.

Jessica Alba spends most of her personal and professional life in some state of undress, and good for her – she’s a beautiful woman and looks great. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, and all that. She does some movies here and there, as well, but if you asked most people what they think of when they think of Jessica Alba, I guarantee you her looks are going to be mentioned first, in some sense.
In a new interview with Maxim (via US Weekly), Jessica says that yeah, she might be hot, but she is more than just her appearance and she worked damn hard to become the woman she is today.
“If you put your whole identity behind this business, it’s brutal,” she told the mag. “It chews you up and spits you out; it spits out a lot of people.”
Alba reflected on how her journey in Hollywood was “so personal,” adding that she didn’t want to discuss it in detail. “But I definitely feel like I tackled something and came out the other side,” Cash Warren’s wife explained. “Everything that led up to all this was worth it. I’m really comfortable in my own skin, and I’m not apologizing for myself.”
Well, good for her? I wouldn’t apologize for being beautiful, either. Has anyone seriously ever asked her to, anyway? I don’t really get the context of that mini-rant (the entire interview hasn’t been published yet), but clearly she’s having some serious feelings about Hollywood.
I generally find Jessica Alba to be pretty innocuous. She doesn’t have much talent and you could take her or leave her from the business, but she’s not doing anyone any harm, so it’s whatever.
